The 4-star Tiki I got in my second draw is turning out to be a lot more useful than I thought a close-range mage would be.

 You know playing all these old games made me realize something that RPGgirl mentioned and it's just so crazy true.

1. Pretty much every RPG of the PS era etc was of very high quality, like just about any PS1/PS2 era RPG is more fun to play than it's PS3/modern successor.

2. The PSP has a lot of amazing RPGs and is a very fun system to play on (UMD discs underrated)

Like it's just mind blowing how much higher standards they had for gameplay back then, there is something kind of soft and unstable about more modern RPGs, especially JRPGs that just makes them a lot less fun to deal with, it's all the details, little things.

Trails in the Sky - The map of Grancel sewers is so stupid and useless and intentionally confusing that it would have been better if they simple hadn't included at all.  I'm going to be wandering around for an hour looking for a tiny secret spot on a random wall because they couldn't even give me the courtesy of letting me rotate the map (or the camera) in order that north is the same on both,

What a crock of shit.

edit: It also doesn't help that Zane explicitly mentions that your starting point is on the bottom LEFT of the map when you're actually on the bottom RIGHT.  Eastern bracer master my ass...

Yeah, I'd been contemplating that since at least 2-3 star is pretty cheap. Thanks again!

Thanks Aeolus. I might swap her in then once I level her up. Currently, Sharena (2-star) is still my go-to blue unit. which is stupid, really, because I have some much better 3- and 4-star fliers, but she's a higher level at the moment!

I'd highly recommend dumping some feathers towards your OGs since I suspect the game will eventually call for some kind of bullshit that requires them at a reasonable powerlevel (even if it will reset their levels and stats back to level 1).

Just picked up my second 5-star, an Effie. Anyone have experience using an armor knight? They often seem like sitting ducks to me.

They have HUGE HP, Def and Atk and can be unstoppable if you're up against physicals without type advantage against you. Tome/Stone users will pretty much eat them for breakfast though (especially if they employ body blocking or terrain works against you), and Armor Effective weapons aren't uncommon at higher levels.

Effie herself is only behind Hector in highest overall stats, so she's not a bad substitute for a 5 star.

Note about my experience with Mass Effect since it was brought up.

ME1 is one of the few times in gaming I can honestly say it was worth putting forth the effort although it didn't initially grab me. I say this because the trilogy as a whole became one of my favorite experiences in all of gaming but I was essentially off "to a bad start" because I was playing it wrong.

First off, I died over and over and over again. Frustrated. Then I realized the formula for success was totally upgrading and relying upon the shield boosting skill and damage buffs. That alone was a game changer for me.

Secondly I wanted to explore every nook and cranny of every planet. You know what happened? I found next to nothing and got nowhere with the game. When I stopped worrying about what I was missing, started b-lining it to what I wanted to do and move the narrative forward the game suddenly took off for me. After playing it for months, I beat the majority of it in a week when I started tackling it like that.

The big reward for your efforts? The game can actually be fun depending on how you play it and you've got ME2 to look forward to thereafter (which is so many leagues better in every sense it isn't even comparable)

The major fail of ME1 is simply that you can play it in a way that falls flatter than a pancake AND feels real dated to boot. Players shouldn't have the freedom to turn the experience into a shitty one without realizing they are doing something wrong (the point of what I am getting at).

Xenosaga 3. I enjoyed 3 immensely and still have a copy of it, whereas I loved Lunar, but only gamefly'd it for my psp iirc, I do not have it anymore. Xenosaga 3 is probably one of my favorite rpgs for just being different.

Also, that ending...Jin...tears man.
